About Ivan Moorhouse & Jessica Karki

After over 30 years of Salmon fishing and life in the beautiful but, often cold and wet San Juan islands in WA. We decided to change up our lives for Dorado and Tuna fishing in the warm and wonderful Baja.

Jessica & I have lived here full time for 3 1/2 and take great pride in our off-grid suites and home. In October 2015 we discovered Jessica had a brain tumor requiring emergency brain surgery. To say the least this has altered our game plan. Due to further treatment of her tumor we were forced to cancel the few 2017 reservations we had on the books in order to move our family north where so we could tackle the, hopefully, last leg of this pesky tumor. We were fortunate to find a great couple who will be moving into our house and managing our rental. Their names are Mark and Jessie and we'll be updating this in the next few weeks to include them.

Ivan Moorhouse & Jessica Karki purchased this house in 2002

Why Ivan Moorhouse & Jessica Karki chose Baja California Sur

This property has great Ocean views, with wonderful whale watching opportunities from the private balcony with miles of sandy beaches that are great for surf-casting. We are in a Ranch setting but only 15 minutes to town by

car. We are in a secure gated neighborhood

with fresh organic veggies available during the

season.

Quite, remote, and scenic getaway.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Casa Solariega from Nov. 12 to Nov. 25 (14 days). We had a wonderful time and experienced several new sites and restaurants in Todos Santos. The Mexican food was excellent everywhere we ate. The Casa was plenty large for our needs. Jessica was an excellent hostess and gave lots of good advice and suggestions to visit and eat. Her young son was a delight and well mannered. My wife and I are both animal lovers and we fell in love with Manzie and Choco, and the chicken. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend this Casa to anyone! George and Vicki

Rustic Baja, Awesome Owner

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 nights in December 2015. This casita is located 5m drive from both a fishing and surfing beach and 10m from downtown Todos Santos. Pictures on the website are true to form. There are two homes on the property, one for the owner and one for the guests. The guest home has two floors, first floor with 2 beds and a 1/2 bath, and then the more modern upstairs with a sitting room w/TV, bedroom and patio with a fantastic view of the ocean. Very Clean! If you're looking for the Four Seasons, this is *not* it. However, if you want a piece of tranquility, unreal star gazing at night and a taste of baja, this will suit you well. Ivan, the owner, is a super guy who will go out of his way to make your trip fantastic. And if you want to talk fishing, Ivan is a domain master.

Oh, and dog friendly for those travelling with mascots.

Eat at: Tequilla Sunrise (unreal chile rellenos), Los Adobes and La Zuaguan? I think is the name of it. Excellent food - all in downtown Todos Santos.

I would definitely stay here again. Very satisfied!!

Authentic Mexico with a fabulous view!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the night sky, sunrises and sunsets. The Pacific beach is minutes away. Ivan is an excellent host. I learned a lot about being off the grid and using solar power.

Just perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I wanted to expose our 4 girls to a different culture, so we decided to head to Baja for summer vacation. Ivan and Jessica's home was just the right mix of local atmosphere and convenience. We loved the quiet remote feel, while only being 10 minutes north of Todos Santos. Ivan and Jessica were delightful hosts, giving us insider tips on the best beaches and great local restaurants. They even drove to town to pick us up. Thanks guys for a great two days.

Awesome Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome, we thoroughly enjoyed it! Ivan and Jessica were great, and super helpful with anything we needed. The location is amazing, just far enough out of town to feel like you're nowhere near it, but close enough to just run in and grab a bite to eat. Place was rad, had two separate living areas, so it was great for us as we were two couples traveling together. Pretty cool that its completely off grid, and powered by solar, amenities were super nice especially given the off grid thing, were much nicer than expected. Thanks again, will be back!!
